Thwarting China's Net Censors
from the internet-free-china dept
Ron Morris writes “A computer network China can’t censor: “Safeweb, partially funded by the Central Intelligence Agency’s Silicon Valley venture capital arm, In-Q-Tel, is proposing a computer network that would circumvent central control.” It’s called Triangle Boy.” I saw this article this morning and wasn’t sure if it was worth posting. It’s interesting, but I’m still not sure how it works. Why can’t China just block all traffic to a Triangle Boy site? Or, if the answer is because so many people will be running Triangle Boy clients, how do people in China find out about where to connect to a Triangle Boy machine in the first place. There has to be some sort of central location that China can block. Maybe I’m just too tired to understand how it all works.
